  1. With all the fear they have succeeded in spreading with the help of the $11,000 per month man, how can the ULP government be so disrespectful, inconsiderate?

    It amounts to gross contempt to think you can just bring these “supposed cases” without any warning to the residents here whose properties are merely feet away.

    Far as I know none of us has declared ourselves “hard fo death”! I guess when you are a self-declared “world boss” the feelings of ordinary people is no consequence.

    They ought to bear in mind that it is a temporary power on loan from the very ordinary people they now find so contemptible!

  2. Mr DaSilva, do you know how the COVID-19 virus is spread? Are you going to the facility to visit and socialize with the patients? It’s a temporary arrangement.
